Club Notes 6th March 2022


Our Club Awards Night is pencilled in for Friday March 25th in the Killarney Avenue Hotel. With Covid 19 this will be our first official Club gathering since 2019 and excitement is sure to be at a fever pitch. In the weeks ahead we will be unveiling the different  Award winners. First up is our Senior and Junior Ladies Players of the Year and Senior B Men’s Player of the Year. 

This year’s Senior Player of the Year is Tara Murphy. Tara, like all Legionnaires, started off in the Saturday Morning Academy and it wasn’t long till she stood out as a player of some talent. This was recognised by call ups to the  Kerry panels at various age levels. Not your typical midfielder, what she lacks in stature she more than makes up for in skill and she has an uncanny knack of doing the right thing at the right times. Given her unique fielding ability there has been calls for the “Catch of the Day” to be renamed Tara in Dads Sean Murphy’s Bar.Now studying in University in Galway her commitment to the team is unwavering and she is a well deserving choice as Player of the Year.
Aisling Stack has been a mainstay of both the Minor and Senior Ladies teams in the Club, never refusing an opportunity to wear the Green and White. Again she has represented the Club at Inter County level in 2017 and 2019 where her adaptability  has seen her slot into any position on the field. Although predominantly a defender she has been known to ramble up the field to kick the odd score. The most famous example being her late intervention in the Donal Curtin Cup Final when she kicked the all important winning goal against the highly fancied Cromane.Aisling is a fitting recipient of the Junior Ladies Player of the Year.
The 2021 Senior B Player of the Year is Noel Moynihan. Affectionately known as Mini, has been playing with the club at every grade since 1995 and lists Johnny Culloty as his biggest influence. He cites David Murphy, Gaelan Carroll and Adam Moynihan as the players he remembers most and describes Michael Bernard O Donoghue as a legend. Always a very dedicated player he keeps himself fit and gives everything to his game. Playing with a smile on his face his approach makes him very popular in the dressing room. His commitment to the club can never be questioned , once even togging out with a hamstring injury to ensure the Club could fulfil a fixture. On another note we would all like to congratulate Noel and Mary Ellen on their recent marriage and wish them the very best for the future
